• MST Fare Increase 1/3/09

    Monterey-Salinas Transit (MST) will implement a fare increase effective January 3, 2009.

    The new fare structure will increase the regular fixed route fare from $2.00 to $2.50 per zone, discount fare from $1.00 to $1.25 per zone and the RIDES fare from $2.50 to $3.00 per zone. Transfers will remain at $0.25 for regular fare passengers and $0.10 cents for discounted fare passengers.

    Single zone day passes will increase from $4.50 to $6.00 and single zone discount day passes from $2.25 to $3.00. All zone day passes will increase from $9.00 to $12.00 and all zone discount day passes from $4.50 to $6.00.

    Single zone monthly passes will increase from $62.00 to $75.00 for fast passes and $31.00 to $37.00 for gold passes (discount). All zone monthly passes will increase from $124.00 to $150.00 for fast passes and $62.00 to $75.00 for gold passes (discount).

    Passengers who have ticket books with the old fare increments will be able to purchase books of ten supplemental tickets in .50 or .25 cent increments. Ticket books with the new fares are also available.

    Monthly passes and ticket books may be purchased in person at the Salinas Transit Center, Marina Transit Exchange and MST Bus Stop Shop in downtown Monterey, online at www.mst.org or by calling 1 (888) MST-BUS1 (888-678-2871).

    In conjunction with the fare increase, MST Rider’s Guides will no longer be offered for free onboard MST buses. Rider’s Guides can be purchased for $1.00 at the Salinas Transit Center, Marina Transit Exchange, or MST Bus Stop Shop in Monterey. One free copy of the Rider’s Guide will be provided upon request with the purchase of a monthly bus pass. Monthly pass holders are not entitled to unlimited Rider’s Guides throughout the month. Following future service changes, new Rider’s Guides will be free onboard MST buses for a period of only 30 days.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
